Something happened last week we never predicted…our oldest began the school year here in France. We couldn’t believe it…how in the world have we found ourselves in this situation? How unpredictable life can be. Anyway, off I go to buy a set of school supplies for her three whole weeks here, and then I'll go home and do it all over again for her school back home. Gotta love it!
While cruising through the back-to-school aisle, I decided to scope out “school” supplies that are pretty enough for grownups too. After skipping over all the cheesy licensed backpacks (yes, they have that overpriced stuff here too), I zoned in on these two favorites: jade green pencils and a cherry red notebook. They almost make me want to do math or something. Or not.
p.s. after Jordan's post on French and German school supplies I'm tempted to scope out art supplies now too...or just admire the pretty picture :)
